Jose Bautista - Also Good at Internetting

It’s from fangraphs and I can’t get a cut and paste, but basically some kid call Bautista a slur, and Bautista tells the kid to stop hating, and that he’s a douche.

Speaking of Bautista, here’s something to smile about:

June 5, 2000: Drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 20th round of the 2000 amateur draft. Player signed May 19, 2001.
December 15, 2003: Drafted by the Baltimore Orioles from the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2003 rule 5 draft.
June 3, 2004: Selected off waivers by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays from the Baltimore Orioles.
June 28, 2004: Purchased by the Kansas City Royals from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
July 30, 2004: Traded by the Kansas City Royals to the New York Mets for Justin Huber.
July 30, 2004: Traded by the New York Mets with Matt Peterson (minors) and Ty Wigginton to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Kris Benson and Jeff Keppinger.
August 21, 2008: Traded by the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Toronto Blue Jays for a player to be named later. The Toronto Blue Jays sent Robinzon Diaz (August 25, 2008) to the Pittsburgh Pirates to complete the trade.

Apparently, the Horstman referred to in the tweets had to repeat his senior year of high school. South Hadley reprazent!

South Hadley? South Hadley, Massachusetts?

BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

That's cute, kid. Next you'll be telling someone you're all hard because you went to Westfield for college.

/From Springfield.

The kid is undeniably a ######### but it seems like a bad idea for Bautista to start getting into Twitter wars with every shithead who says something stupid. This is the kind of thing that is fine if he does it once or twice but if he starts regularly responding to every internet moron (and there are at least 5 or 6 out there) he's eventually going to say something stupid himself.

What's more is that now that it's known that he'll respond to morons, he's open to get trolled by other uncreative asshats looking for attention.

Soon after he will hit rock bottom and end up in the DVD thread.

Joe Rogan did it better when some MySpace MMA superstar challenged Joe to a fight. Rogan showed up at the guy's dojo and beat his ass.

July 30, 2004: Traded by the New York Mets

What a dark day.

The only good thing about South Hadley is that is has one of the only 'Mister Donut' locations left in the country.
